Kids Commute: 'The Composer is Dead' Week!

This week on Kids Commute, we're solving a musical mystery as we get an introduction to the instruments of the orchestra with the Lemony Snicket story "The Composer is Dead" with music by Nathaniel Stookey.

This isn't the only musical orchestral introduction though: composer Benjamin Britten also has a (non-narrated, non-fiction) piece, "The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra."

Put on your detective cap and join Kate for a week of some symphonic solving.
